Youth need to follow Mahatma, say Bollywood celebrities

New Delhi, Oct 2 : On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti Wednesday, Bollywood celebrities like Shekhar Kapur and Anupam Kher remembered the teachings of the Father of the Nation, and rued how much the youth needs to adopt his principles of non-violence.


On Gandhi's 144th birth anniversary Wednesday, celebrities shared their thoughts via microblogging website Twitter. While some hope that the nation continues to follow his ideologies, some wondered what would have been Gandhi's reaction to the current state of the country.

Here's what the celebrities had to say:

Shekhar Kapur: Today let's take Mahatma Gandhi's picture off the wall and put him back in our hearts. Let us not worship him, but learn from what he was telling us.

Yaami Gautam: So many wishes on Gandhi Jayanti. But are we merely wishing each other or celebrating it too, makes me ponder. Jai Hind.

Kunal Kohli: The only thing Gandhiji would say if he saw the state of the nation today would be "Hey Ram" (Oh god!).

Vishal Dadlani: October 2nd. The day a lazy nation takes a holiday in the name of a man who said we should work 24 hours a day. Sorry Gandhiji.

Satish Kaushik: Wishing everyone Gandhi Jayanti...Salute to father of the nation.

Anupam Kher: Two Great Indians born on the same day. Their contribution in our lives is incomparable. Happy Birthday to Bapu and to Lal Bahadur Shastriji. Jai Ho.

Sophie Choudry: Gandhiji's speeches/thoughts are so progressive, relevant, enlightening even today. Wish there were more like him.

Aditi Rao Hydari: Happy to you Gandhiji! (sic) As a nation I wish we followed you, respected your work and remembered you more than we do.

Dia Mirza: Mahatma Gandhi: "Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?" Happy Birthday Bapu.

Isha Koppikar: Happy Gandhiji Jayanti. Sad to see how the youth has displayed pictures and their status (on social networking websites) saying 'Dry Day' and 'stock leke rakho'. He's 'The Father of The Nation'.
